“awful food/good ambiance”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Had one of the worst meals in a long time. This used, several years ago, be a very reliable place for food and many cambridge locals go there with their families. Now the food is unreliable: overcooked fish, browning lettuce, uncooked/hard veggies like brussel sprouts, and chili that is cold in the center. The setting is nice with a fireplace and a long bar. The ambiance is very good with lots of noise, music, tv, lots of couples and good beer. Just don't eat there! or go there only for the food!

“Our go to pub/restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

My husband and I love going to Christopher's, not only does this place have great energy but their food never disappoints. We have pretty much have tasted a wide variety of food here and it was great each time. The staff is always friendly, it's clean and there has never been a wait or delay in service. We highly recommend this restaurant to many

“as always - a great meal at Christophers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I had not been to Christophers in years (like 20+) but found the food to be just as good (mmmm Boursin burger) and so reasonably priced. Very glad it is still around and will be back soon!

“Classic pub experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Great beers selection and fantastic burgers. If you are looking for a relaxing place to grab a burger and a few beers this is it.

“Great atmosphere, pub food and beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Nice place in Porter Square. Good service, good food and a wide range of beers. You can get a beer sampler. We had burgers and pasta dishes that everyone in our party really enjoyed.
